Good value and location for Jamestown
Posted Sep 14, 2010
Gladstone Inn & Suites was a great choice for my first visit to Jamestown. Located on one end of "main street", as the locals seem to call it, it was functional yet kitschy (sp?). Unassuming from the outside, especially with the "all night bar (casino?)" area and signage, it still satisfied quite nicely. It seems they have a variety of themed rooms available for rental, but the standard rooms were just fine. The Inn is two stories, with carpeted hallways on the interior. No general eating facilities, but 3-4 vending machines right near the front desk. There is a pool, though I did not peruse that facility. There is an internet-enabled desktop in a little nook across from the front desk, with an atm next to it. Big screen TV in the waiting room with a fireplace and comfy couches. I think this place also has conference/large reception rooms available for rent. It is 1-2 blocks away from fine eating establishments and great morning coffee/cafes. Grocery store just down main street, and lots of fast food joints within 5 minutes driving distance, on the way back to the highway. The only drawback to the place is that it is literally right next to train tracks. That concerned me a bit, but with a room window on the wall that faced perpendicular to the tracks, I was not bothered at all by train sounds during sleepytime. Downright pleasant stay, and more than I expected from such a small town experience.
